When it comes to dressing your bump, finding a flattering fit can be tricky business. Too loose and you can look like you’re just wearing a paper sack; too tight and it can be extremely uncomfortable. However, at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences screening of Jackie on December 1 in Washington, D.C., Natalie Portman, who’s pregnant with her second child with husband Benjamin Millepied, rocked the dress that every expecting woman needs in her wardrobe.
Meet the maternity ruched dress. With cinching along the side seams, it hugs your curves in all the right places so you get a flattering body-conscious silhouette. The long sleeves and above-the-knee length make an option like Portman’s Nestor dress by Isabella Oliver perfect for layering as temperatures fall. Add a statement necklace for a night out, or a puffer vest for running errands.
